The social services of Good Shepherd Services (GSS) started more than 60 years ago with the establishment of Pusat Kebajikan Good Shepherd (PKGS). In April 2015, GSS was incorporated as a company limited by guarantee to continue the PKGS tradition of upholding the rights, worth and dignity of women and children in underserved communities and those experiencing sexual and gender-based violence. GSS is a not-for-profit organisation which has been granted tax-exempt status.
IN 2023, OUR PROGRAMMES IMPACTED THE LIVES OF:
We support the trauma recovery of women to enable them to experience healing and recovery of their self-worth and dignity. We also reach out to women in rural areas and empower them against sexual gender-based violence.
We enable children to access their right to education, enjoyable childhood and holistic formation. We equip children with the skills and knowledge to better safeguard themselves against all forms of abuse.
We focus on youth development programmes centred around rural-urban migration for employment and education. We look at resolving issues related to urban poverty and the challenges confronted by rural youths in city living.
We initiate community empowerment and protection projects that seek to improve the lives of women and children in at-risk Indian communities in Ipoh; enhance the protection of the girl-child in Tambunan; provide access to secondary education for children in Tulid; and promote healthy and resilient relationships in families.
Through small-scale economic justice community-based projects, we provide women with the opportunities to improve their livelihood and contribute towards an improved quality of life in indigenous rural communities.
